If you want to have the most fun on Halloween and get as into it as you can with the kids, then you are going to want to learn about a new Halloween decorating idea or two. After all, half the fun of the holiday has to do with decorating the house and getting everything set up, so be really creative and use all the different tips and ideas that you can.


There are some pretty fantastic Halloween decoration ideas that you could run with. Candles are always great on Halloween and give that spooky, eerie feeling that you are hoping for. You can use some candles inside carved jack-o-lanterns to make them come to life and make the faces glow.

To make it even more realistic and spooky, try putting some dark colored candles in creepy candleholders around the jack-o-lantern outside, but of course just make sure that you are always keeping an eye on them because if left unattended candles can fall over and start a fire.

Another great Halloween decoration idea is to use some fake blood. Nothing is creepier than some fake blood, so this Halloween decoration idea is really great. You can buy pre-made fake blood at most costume and specialty stores, but you can also try making your own with food coloring and a few other inexpensive ingredients.

Another Halloween decoration idea is to use some sound effects. Why not hook up a cool device to the stairs so when kids walk up to knock on the door and get candy it will set it off? Of course you don’t want to use anything too scary because there will be younger children who are going to be visiting and so you don’t want them to be too alarmed, but this idea typically goes over very well.

Lighting effects are also great for a Halloween decoration idea, if you are really into the holiday and want to go all out.

It really all depends on the amount of money that you have to spend and how willing you are to get into the holiday. There are some people who just decorate a bit and others who spend a few weeks beforehand getting the place ready and making sure that everything is set up just right. It all depends on how much you want to get into the holiday, but the more you decorate the more the kids visiting are going to love it.
